Empty MYSQL remote backups
« on: December 03, 2019, 11:25:11 AM »
I use remote backup but MYSQL backup has some bug.
All SQL files are empty.
Daily, Weekly and Monthly MYSQL backups (/cwp_remote/mysql/) are empty with size 0KB.

Any fix?

No, I use the old remote backup.
I had no problems with backups on CWP6, but I've reinstalled my vps with CentOS7 (CWP7) and now MYSQL backups doesn't works. The files backups of user accounts are fine, but mysql files are empty. Strange :/

I found that not only Remote mysql backup files are empty but the local backup mysql files in "backup" folder also are empty.

I don't know but this CWP7 can't backup any MYSQL files :(

I've lost faith in the inbuilt backup- always has had bugs here & there. The ioncube encoded files are a joke!
Yesterday, I replicated the most important commands from the backup log onto a bash script, for a single user/domain and awaiting the cron job to run, in order to verify its' workings.

Setup for one user/domain but fairly easily extendable. At present only backups the user's home dir, plus database and emails.
WTF is this not fully open-source for the benefit of others? Ioncube the backup script? Don't be dumb!

Code: [Select]
# --------------------
echo Custom Backup Job Starting
mkdir -p ${tmp_dir}${username}
echo copying home directory
ionice -c 3 nice -n +19 rsync -a /home/${username}/ ${tmp_dir}${username}
mkdir -p ${tmp_dir}${username}/mysql/
mysql --defaults-extra-file=/root/.my.cnf -e "show databases LIKE '${username}%';" | grep -v Database | while read databasename
     echo dumping $databasename
     mysqldump --defaults-extra-file=/root/.my.cnf "$databasename" > ${tmp_dir}${username}/mysql/"$databasename.sql" \
               2> ${tmp_dir}${username}/mysql/errors.txt

mkdir -p ${tmp_dir}${username}/vmail/
echo copying email
ionice -c 3 nice -n +19 cp -fR /var/vmail/${domain} ${tmp_dir}${username}/vmail/
echo consolidating files
cd ${tmp_dir}${username};ionice -c 3 nice -n +19 tar -cjf ${username}.tar.bz2 --exclude ${username}.tar.bz2 *
cd ${tmp_dir}${username};mv ${username}.tar.bz2 ${backup_dir}${username}-$(date -d "today" +"%Y%m%d%H%M").tar.bz2
echo cleaning up
/usr/bin/find ${backup_dir} -name "*.bz2" -mtime +${retention} -delete > /dev/null 2>&1
rm -Rf ${tmp_dir}${username}
echo Custom Backup Job Finished

Notes: I run this as a root cron task, followed half an hour later by another task which rsyncs the backup to a webDAV Nextcloud share.

Hi there

Do you have a script that backs up all users SQL daily? I dont require any file backups just SQL

Thank you
